Feelin’ less than…


Mirrors aren’t so great you see,

because they show the real me.

Mirrors show the flaws of youth

Like gross pimples or a crooked tooth.

Frizzy hair or hair too straight,

plain eyes that aren’t too great.

Mirrors show the steps of age

like crow’s feet and eyes that fade.

Graying skin and a double chin,

beautiful hair that’s way too thin.

Mirrors aren’t so great, in fact,

I do believe mine is packed.

Behind the wigs and makeup case,

the ironing board and an old cracked vase.

The more I have to examine my face,

the more I like that old cracked vase.

Mirrors, what a waste.

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
